THE ZOO OF THE IMAGINARY

According to Michel de Certeau, in a technocratic society as our own, religion is caged in the ‘zoo of the imaginary’, together with other genre-creatures, such as science fiction, romance, or the ‘witchcraft of ethnology’, as he calls it. For the next issue of Passage, we want  to let these spiritual, imaginary animals out of the cage, and into the banal, crumbling, hyperconnected everyday reality we inhabit.

 

THE EXERCISES

Ruined Hope: Experiments in Negation, Nihilism, and Possibility (ACLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, October 1, 2021 - 11:49am
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The critical (re)turn to negation has provoked unprecedented attention to hope and hopelessness as key terms of contemporary living and dying. In her monograph on ecological crisis and political theology, Catherine Keller argues that hope must be decoupled from optimism. Where optimism and pessimism determine their outcomes in advance, hope takes root in uncertainty and remains there. The point of hope is, after all, that we cannot know how something will go.

Post45 Contemporaries
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature. Recent evidence suggests the evangelical share of the population may be decreasing, but its political power so far has not waned and it is geared for apocalyptic combat. Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.
